Wrestling …A Teddy Bear

Door opens wide …a delusional night
Where are the boys …she says flipping the light
I awake with a startle …who …what…where?
My quiet dreams became …  a  nightmare!
Oh Mother …what’s triggered your brain
To wake me at midnight …playing this game
It’s me … it’s alright …still time  for  sleeping
Not up and around … thru doors …peeping
Time to resettle …into your bed
Time to resume …pillow your head
Keeping  a calm …quiet …air
Compares to wrestling …  a  real …teddy bear!
